AIDS Candles

"Anonymous" left a comment (yesterday?) that the candle count was at 211,000. I bet it's more by now.

Impressive and thanks to all of you who responded so quickly.

I was just there and it's over 300,000.

I'm sorry about Carol. I'll be thinking about all of you. Please keep us updated (good idea to add Tim!).

Hi Ann ~~ Well done on the Candle idea (I did) to raise money for aids. There are so many things that need money at this time for the needy and charities,
and research is always necessary.
I hope the new mocem works well for you, as you have had too much trouble. My prayers go out to Carol and you and family. Ray seems to be doing well ?
Thanks for your comments, I liked the dead robin stoy "into the hole he goes" Kids are great and tell it how it is.Take care dear friend, Love, Merle.

I clicked on the candle a number of times, it’s up to 514,000. Aids drugs were hugely expensive and It’s only recently, largely because of copycat versions of the Aids drugs being made in India that it became widely known how relatively inexpensive these drugs are to make.

Once known this cuased an outrage.

U N Sec Gen Kofi Annan won an agreement with Pfizer Inc, GlaxoSmithKline, Abbott Laboratories, Bristol-Myers Suibb, Hoffman-Laroche and Boehringer Ingelhelm to reduce prices of AIDS treatments for the world's poorest nations. Dr William Prusoff, who discovered--stavudine, or d4T--supports the wider distribution at much lower cost to poorer countries. Bristol-Myers Squibb, distributor has announced sharp reductions now in prices for Africa.

Sorry to hear Carol is in hospital, a tough time for you all and I hope and pray for a good outcome.

Best wishes
